A festive occasion. Socrates appeared with a surprise performance.
Wearing a hat, he appeared to blow a trumpet in time to his own cheer. Behind him, Lee Woo-sung and Choi Ji-min kept pace with toy trumpets.
Stepping up to bat, Socrates faced Dream All-Star starter Park Se-woong with runners on first and second and hit a two-pitch (133 km) fastball from 1S over the fence behind right field. The distance was 125 meters.
A shot that you know is a home run the moment it’s hit. Socrates threw his hands in the air and celebrated.
The Nanum All-Stars pushed hard from the start. In the first inning, Lee Jung-hoo singled and Chae Eun-sung doubled to lead off the inning, and Choi Hyung-woo singled to put runners on first and second. This was followed by a home run by Socrates to make the score 4-0 and set the tone for the rest of the game.
